Designy Studio: Aminimal


Ribbon necklace

Brooklyn-based Aminimal Studio is a collaboration between American-born John Briscella and Russian-born Svetlana Blum Briscella. According to the pair, “We research complex systems, phenomena in nature, and urban chaos as an approach to design jewelry, lighting, and products with the intention of influencing the architectonic spaces that our designs inhabit.”

The Field Test jewelry collection was designed around the premise of structures found in magnetic fields. Showcased at last winter’s Gift Fair in New York City, the lightweight forms are created by rapid prototyping and simulate experiments with B-Field lines. Other pieces from the duo include laser-cut earrings and necklaces, and a notebook, cork board, and clock that explore the patterns of different city grids. At a moment when maps are increasingly digital, it’s a nice to see our city streets in solid form once again. Prices range from $25-$110 U.S. for the jewelry; Urban Gridded Notebook is $25.
